**************************************This Week’s Headline Story

Dear Readers, this story is super special because this couple exemplifies the spirit of this blog: How To Be A Wise Traveller And Learning About Life Along The way!

Exclusive to Wisertraveller.org  This Couple Is Travelling Around The World —All On A Bike!

Feb 20, 2016 —

At a local coffee shop, we are surprised to recognize  a young fit couple who were profiled on TV news not so long ago. It’s not just an ordinary couple. We’ve just met the outgoing, and cheerful young couple from Santiago, Chile who is undergoing an incredible journey of a lifetime:  travelling around the world by bike.

Who are they? The couple is Bernard and Natalia from Santiago, Chile. While Natalia chats nearby with someone from the coffee shop, Wisertraveller.org got a chance to talk to Bernard who happily agrees to expand upon their adventures so far.  Amazingly, the couple started their trip by bike in November 2014, starting off in Cuba. Later, the couple also biked to Mexico where they photographed and made friends with locals. They encountered a more arduous journey through Baha, California.

In Baja, it was especially grueling as “it was extremely hot” and food and water were in short supply. Still, they made it through the desert and once in the United States, they raised funds by cleaning peoples’ garages. One homeowner had so much junk, he says, that once the garage was cleared of unusable items, he had to go back there in another week to do another cleaning. He smiles and takes it all in stride because the pay was good, he says.

The reason to cycle around the world? It’s a dream to see the world, says Bernard. And he hopes that their journey will inspire other people to follow their dreams, whatever they may be.

Also, the ride is a way to promote cycling as an eco-friendly way to see the world, he says.

And Vancouver? He says they liked Stanley Park and points out that the park is ideal for cyclists because of its numerous bike paths and great scenery.

Their immediate plans are to make their way across Canada. Then the couple will bike some more, and make it around more countries –until they have seen the entire world. It’s a long way to go and Bernard estimates that their bike trip will take 5 to 10-years to complete.  Already, they have taken thousands of photos and when I request a photo of them, to my amazement, they ask for a photo of me –selfie style.

You can follow the couple on their blog at  http://bynbike.com which chronicles their incredible journey through photos, writings,  and videos. To donate to help support their world bike ride, please visit their website where there is a donate button.

Happy Chinese New Year: If You Are Thinking of Buying A New Home In Vancouver’s Hot Real Estate Market, Read on!

If you are a local resident, you already know what Vancouver offers: it’s a place that has a world-class reputation for its beautiful scenery, fine cuisine, multicultural diversity and tons of outdoor activities for the young and the old. It’s easy to see why people from other countries love what the city offers. But there’s one group that is making a  bigger splash in the Vancouver real estate market. It’s the affluent people from Mainland China. Now there’s an academic study to support this.  According to a recent study done over a six-month period last year, 70 percent of all detached home buyers are by Mainland China buyers.

Is there something these home buyers didn’t know? According to a Vancouver radiation testing company, there is something everybody can do before they consider buying a home.

Test for radiation before you buy a home, cautions one company.

If you are thinking of buying a home, it may be a good idea to do wide-frequency radiation testing, according to a local testing company. The reason, they say, is that there may be potential dangers  lurking near your home or potential dream home.  There are studies and research done on the topic of electromagnetic radiation with some studies suggesting that  there may be some dangers to people if they have  prolonged exposure to EMF emissions.  Other things to consider: if you want to own a property, consider how far it is from a power line. Studies have pointed to possible associations between power lines and its role in cancer development. To read more about this  topic and the potential dangers caused by EMF radiation,   go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7mLmwc6cUM.  Closer to home, a local website has reported that a young family is struggling to cope with the news that their child is suffering from leukemia.

If you are experiencing headaches, tiredness or muscle tension, radio smog may be to blame. It also may be time to test your own home for high EMF emissions.

For potential home buyers who want to avoid health problems, it may be wise to do some testing of your own.

Yes, before you buy your dream home, you may want to get it evaluated for potential radiation dangers.
